I wanted to create my character from the first time I played the game, a naive, blonde girl with good karma ;) (she actually died from a wind blast just outside Vault 101). But I also made another makeup test with a Mohawk hairdo.
I traced of an existing jacket and divided the front into 4 panel on each side.
I used yellow felt to get clean lines. The zipper was sewed to the felt and then the felt sewed to the front of the jacket.
The numbers on the back was also felt, since I then didn't have to finish the edges.
To weather the jacket I watered out acrylic paint and airbrushed the jacket. Which worked very well.
I also needed pants! Again I cut open an old pair of pants and traced it to get a new pattern.
My knee pads.
Pants and jacket are done.
I still haven't had the time to do a full photoshoot with this cosplay yet, so only test photos are ready.
But soon, just have to finish Fallout 4 first ;)
